  • Been asleep for to long...Hyphenation is over

    So here I am up and feeling OK, I am going for a hike before I change my mind and crawl back into bed. I will write my story when I get back in a few hours

    I am so happy I went hiking for 2h, I was slow but I did it

    So my story is like most story's full of sad things that maybe should be left in the past. Time to write a new chapter in this old book of mine. I will just say the last 15 years have been very hard and sad, I fell into a big dark place for 3 years and that's when I started to feed my depression with food. I never enjoyed the junk I was eating, but I just kept eating it. I was doing IVF for 10 years and lost 4 babies, I went from a very fit lady 58kg to a fat 95kg depressed sad looking women. I have been really trying to get back on track with myself, but just keep falling down. Today I woke up feeling stronger and had a good talk with myself. I want to live my life as long as I can, I love this planet and still have so much to do. So my new chapter begins today and I have no excuse what so ever. Depression is very hard for some people to understand, my partner never understood and could not be there for me. I want myself back, I need myself back

        I am very lucky as I grow all my own fruit and veg, I always have done. I have chickens so I have eggs, I have always eaten very healthy. I don't do low fat junk, I live in Italy so I have my own olive oil and red wine that I make every October. My life is perfect to some, but when you are not happy and depressed nothing matters. I don't eat red meat or very much fish, I get by on chicken and turkey. Cheese is a big love of mine, but I will cut back to start me on the right track. I will only have 2 coffee in the morning with full fresh cream, Italian coffee is the best I use sweeteners but was reading I can have honey, must go back and read again make sure I got that right.

                So yesterday was a good a day, I feel tired today but I am up and going for another hike soon. Going now to make my eggs and have some tea. I know if I can get over the first 5 days I will be OK, its just getting all that sugar out of my body. I have been looking at the C25K programme and think I will give it a go Couch to 5k - C25K Running Program it will really help me get back out there.

                  I see you figured out sw cw gw. Have you read the book or at least the start here info? The primal blueprint is a good way to get up to speed on how we do what we do.

                  other references are:

                  Home Robb Wolf is one of the best references out there, he has a great podcast and loads of good information. he is a bit cranky sometimes but fun to listen to. Very sciency if you like the indepth explanations.

                  Everyday Paleo | Paleo Recipes and Lifestyle by Sarah Fragoso Is also a great resource, they have a good podcast and I like how Jason Seib approaches the paleo diet and weight loss for women.

                  GNOLLS.ORG - Home of J. Stanton and The Gnoll Credo is good if you like very science heavy explanations of things from another perspective. I really enjoy his writing style.

                    I would have some reservations about suggesting you do the couch to running 5k thing. Paleo is generally not about lots of cardio work. If you wanted to do the walking 5 k version then fine but our mantra is walk every day, lift heavy 3 or 4 times a week and sprint a few times a week. Running is a huge stress on the body and the hormones and if you are 60 lbs overweight you allready have enough stress messing up your system.

                    Work on cleaning up your food for the next month while you learn how to eat paleo. Clean up your sleep and make sure you get 8 hours everyday in a dark room. Walk a lot which you seem to like anyways. For now this is enough.

                    Read everything you can and find out what foods work best and hurt the most for you.

                    Spend the next 30 to 60 days with no dairy, grains or beans. Then reintroduce dairy for 10 days and see what happens, then re introduce beans for 10 days and see what happens. Then repeat with grains and see. This way you find out if any of them are an issue. If you can handle dairy, have some, if you like beans and they dont make you sick, you can have some. we really dont recommend most grains but white rice or quinoa are generally ok if they dont make you react.

                      Thanks for info, I will not start C25K then. Cleaning my food up won't be hard as I have always been very healthy and properly nearly Primal, it was the depression that took over me and I was always hungry...eating without even thinking. I was like a robot, I had no feelings and I don't even think I could taste what I was stuffing down my throat.

                      Yes I love hiking and I am off now for another one with my 4 dogs, 2 Black Labs and 2 English Springer Spaniels

                      I read lots yesterday and still have a lot to read, so much info on here. I will look into ordering books in English later, I am sure I can get them sent to Italy.

                      I am going to first get the sugar out of my body in the next 5 days, then I will give up dairy. The rest I don't care for beans and grains, but I could reintroduce beans in the future to see what happens. Grains are bad for me and I know, they make me depressed and hungry.

                      Thank you again Warmbear

                        So I went for another hike 2h 20m, was hard going up I felt really tired. But I went slowly and got to where I wanted to get to, dogs very happy. Tomorrow I will not hike, have to work plus I don't think I would make it up there. I will get my bicycle out this weekend, I bought a new one in 2010 and have been on it maybe 5 times. I used to cycle 4h a day 3-4 times a week, so I really am looking forward to getting back out there. Its a great place to cycle round here, if you ever see Tour de France or Giro d'Italia that's the kind of roads I get to ride on. I can still swim in the sea as it is still very hot here, as for weights I am not a great lover. But I do work with 2 year old kids and I pick them up a lot, plus I work with dogs and their bags of food weigh 12kg. I will look into weight training later at some point, I promise.

                        Day 2 over, feel a little hungry, so I will have a hot drink and go to bed. Tomorrow I work an 18h day so I can't check in, its going to be hard tomorrow I know it is.....

                          At work and its very hard today, the kids eat so much rubbish I had to make Nutella brioche for them. They are all sleeping now, so I am reading and staying away from the kitchen. I did not even lick my fingers that were covered in Nutella, I so wanted to saying "it won't hurt" but I didn't do it I may just have a nap, is that aloud I did get up at 04.00 this morning and only got 4h last night.

                            So I made it through the night without eating anything, at 23:30 I was craving bad. I kept saying to myself it will be okay you can start again tomorrow, but I did not give in and fell asleep. I feel ok this morning and was not hungry when I got up, I just had my eggs now at 11:00. Going to the health shop to see what I can find and the Indian shop to get lots and lots of coconut everything I think today will be easier than yesterday, working with dogs today so their food will not bother me like the Nutella did yesterday.

                              Still at work, hope to finish by midnight then a 45min drive home. I have done so much walking today and my eating has been perfect, I am not craving tonight which is wonderful 4th day and I have not felt depressed once and that is such a good feeling. I got some great things at the Indian shop, coconut in all kinds of ways yum yum. Tomorrow I will cook coconut curry, I think I love curry more than any other food. I will stop dairy in a few days for 10 days and then add it back to see what happens. Hiking tomorrow afternoon, I will have to start been careful as hunting season has started
